Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. The GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 612 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition can run Grand Theft Auto VI at 1080p and predict it will return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 77 FPS, Medium: 60 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Far Cry 6 returns a playable 28 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Grand Theft Auto VI on the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 58FPS, M: 46FPS, H: 31FPS, U: 22FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Far Cry 6 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 21 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Battlefield 2042 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 13 FPS. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition in your PC? Upgrade time for this GPU is currently placed at 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition is the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which is 54% more powerful and can run 971 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 960 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 46% increased graphics performance.
